Fort Worth Artist to Exhibit Works at Angelo State
Angelo State University's new Art Gallery is hosting an exhibit of cutting edge paintings by Fort Worth artist Alvaro Perez through Oct. 1 in the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building.
The Art Gallery is located in Room 193 of the EFA Building. Perez's exhibit, "Extractions," is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Patrons can meet Perez for a special gallery talk at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 1 in the gallery. Both the exhibit and the gallery talk are open free to the public.
An exciting young and emerging artist, Perez has shown his work at numerous regional exhibitions throughout Texas. Ryder Richards, gallery director of the Art Depot in Lubbock, described Perez's paintings as "existing on the border between chaos and order as they seek to describe the hidden tensions that pervade the world around us."
Perez holds a bachelor of fine arts degree from Texas Tech University and a master of fine arts degree in painting from Texas Christian University. He is currently an adjunct faculty member at the University of North Texas School of Visual Art in Denton and at TCU in Fort Worth.
